dc.description.abstractWhite supremacy organizations are a violent threat, and yet there is no true understanding of the psychological characteristics and properties of supremacy. An introduction to white supremacy groups and the ethos of American ethnocentrism sets the context for the review of psychological literature. Past research has explored the psychology of prejudice through lenses of psychoanalysis, cultural identity formation, personality constructs, and social anomie. The review of literature pertaining to supremacy and racism reveals a lack of a specific and all-encompassing psychological theory explaining white supremacy; trends, however, are exposed. The primary psychological trend in white supremacy is a void within an individual's conscious or subconscious that is filled with a constant state of crises and supremacist ideology to ease discomfort.en_US
